Keep working on the high frequency words, especially Sets A and B. If your child is confident of these please move on into Set C.

In Literacy this week we are going to focus on some tricky words. Print out the booklet and do one page each day. Read over the words with your child daily. At the end of the week check to see which words your child can read independently.
Literacy: Tricky word booklet.Tricky word focus page 1. Balloon Tricky word colouring. Read the words together, pointing to each word as you read it. Encourage your child/ren to point to the word as they read it. Call out a word and ask your child/ren to find it on the page, swap roles and your child/ren calls out the word and you find it. Numeracy: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ Select Early Years for P1. Lesson 1. This week the book focus is Zog by Julia Donaldson.Story book clip on You Tube. White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group, one lesson per day. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you how to help your child/ren to complete the activity successfully. No registration or passwords are needed.
Literacy: Tricky word focus page 2. Key and locks tricky word matching. Write the words out on pieces of paper and put around the house/room. One word per sheet. Play Treasure Hunt. Call out a word and your child/ren has to find it and bring it back to you. Can they put it into a sentence just by saying sentence, no need to write. E.g. “I like going to the beach.” Here they have used the word I.
Topic: Tell your child/ren that you are the captain and they are going to be your pirates. As part of their pirate training, the children will need to learn some pirate phrases and do some pirate jobs. Each phrase they learn is accompanied with an action.
- ‘Walk the plank!’ explain its meaning, then tell the children that each time they hear the phrase ‘Walk the plank!’, they need to walk in a straight line, as if walking along a plank.
- ‘Scrub the deck!’ Explain to the children the meaning of the phrase and ask them to act it out. Remind them that each time they hear this phrase they need to act out scrubbing the deck.
- ‘Avast Ye’ – all stand still and pay attention.
- ‘Climb the Rigging’ – pretend to climb a rope ladder on board the pirate ship.
- Ask your child/ren to walk/jog around the space.
- Call out one of the pirate phrases. Can your child/ren very quickly perform the correct task?
- Once your child/ren have performed the actions, they can continue to walk around the space until the next phrase.
Literacy: Tricky word focus page 3. Caterpillar tricky word writing. Repeat yesterday’s Treasure Hunt game. This time when they create a sentence write it down for them, keep your handwriting clear and well-spaced out. Here you are modelling how to write their sentence. Start with a capital letter, demonstrate a finger space between words, complete with a full stop and reread the sentence over again. Pretend to get stuck on a word and get your child/ren to tell you. When you have written a few now ask your child/ren to circle any words that are on their Caterpillar tricky word writing page.
Literacy: Tricky word focus pages 4 and 5. Tricky words train and Beehive tricky word matching. Today you are reading, colouring and matching. Check your child/ren can read the words on the train. If they can’t don’t colour them, keep practising.
